Somewhere even the infinite horizon ends, yet it is still boundless. Just like a home. Some draw their own boundaries here, some there; and some people’s borders are drawn by others here or there. The horizon divides and bounds, it repels and attracts, it cries dichotomy. The boundary only divides.
“One can never tell where home ends”, holds the artist. Because everywhere is home. On his graphic art there is but one boundary, that of the frame; on his diptychs
only the with of the canvas. He feels at home on the poppy- and sunflower fields, on the sea of mud, on the ploughed field, on a Locust-tree branch stretching to the sky, in the winter snowfall, in the foggy sunlight, in the rest of the Pulis
, in sense and sentiment, in division and unity. At home in Budapest, Hungary or in Bačka Topola
, Serbia, or in any other city, or anywhere on the road.
The Endre Penovác Exhibit at Nádor Galéria

And what would its artist be like?
lives in a gingerbread house. One of his studio’s windows faces north, the other one overlooks the garden. When not resting in the shade of the Sky Vine, his two corded coat Pulis guard the entrance. Distinguishing mark of his street: where the Acacia branches hang over the road.
